Age of Pirates 2 gets release date.

May 12th, 2009. That’s the date that Age of Pirates 2: City of Abandoned Ships is scheduled for release. You can read the details here.

So let me make another prediction – on May 12th, computers of pirate enthusiasts around the globe will crash, weird Russian text will inexplicably pop up onscreen containing vital yet untranslated information, and quests and storylines – if the game can run without a bluescreen of death for long enough, will trail off in unexpected and illogical directions.

I’m a nice guy, and therefore I’m sometimes overly delicate in dishing out the criticism. But I feel very unsympathetic in this case – Akella handed us a steaming turd with Age of Pirates: Caribbean Tales. It was the Windows Vista of the pirate gaming world – gorgeous at first glance, but a disaster on second, third, and fourth. I hope they’ve pulled their heads from their collective asses this time around, because I truly want this to be a great game. The creators of Seadogs should by all rights to the kings of the genre – they’ve got the goods, they just never seem to have the common sense or quality control.

    Hmm could be good. I just hope it’s easy to play then PotBS. That one is just too F’n slow for any type of action RPG. Since it’s for XBOX, thus not needing a subscription, will the game be multi player?

    What can I say, I’ve spent enough time playing with myself.

    X-Box? I think this game is for the PC only, QM.

    Ah crap. I must have read that wrong. My puter is too jammed full of porn for more games lol.
